INTERNATIONAL BODIES TO HELP GHANA FIGHT FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION.
In Ghana, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) which is retarding national development is still prevailing in some parts of the Country.
Although, the government and its stakeholders are still working assiduously to discourage this heinous act from happening; the perpetrators have rather decided to muddy the waters thereby engaging in this atrocious act clandestinely.
The investigations revealed that FGM is believed to prevent or guide against interests in early sex and thereby discouraging promiscuity and prevent death of first baby born. Interestingly it is believed that the presence of a clitoris makes a woman a man.
To be candid, a phone call I received from a victim whose name has been withheld for security reasons, triggered me to write this article to remind the government, security agencies and all the stakeholders to double- up effort in order to clamp- down on this act completely in the country.
According to the victim, she was being pressurized by relatives to undergo circumcision in the Brong-Ahafo Region . I was astonished when I heard this tragic news.
Normally, this barbaric act is only common in the Upper East and Upper West Region in country. Not knowing, other regions too have started embracing this violence against women in the country.
These primitive acts are disgraceful in our modern Ghana. I can vividly to attest to the fact that, this atrocious act is the major cause of rural –urban migration among the adolescents. Since most of them took a judicious step by running from this deadly act.
More so, majority of Ghanaians who are living in other foreign countries are being intimidated by this criminal act; thereby finding it difficult to return home to contribute their quota to national development.
“FGM can cause death through excessive haemorrhage and may sometimes affect the upper labia which expose the victim to serious pains, far excruciating than the periodic trauma women go through during child birth”.
As a journalist, I am of the opinion that, the world being a global village, it a high time we say good- bye to these outmoded inhuman act in the name of customs.
More so, I am calling on international bodies as well to help Ghana wage war against these practices in Ghana.
